Happy Sunday! I can't quite believe its nearly the end of February and I'm just sharing my first post of 2018. I suppose I've already failed the "create more blog content" resolution right? but i have another 10 months to make up for it.

Its been a funny old start to 2018 if I'm honest, I haven't really been inspired by anything "fashion" in recent week so i have been living in a varied version of jeans and a tee since the beginning of January. I wish i could be sharing a more inspiring outfit with you today but i think that its this kind of outfit outfit that we can all relate to. We don't all have the money to go out an buy a whole new outfit for every day of the year, so I've decided to shop my wardrobe and wear the clothes that i already own.

I've had these jeans since last summer and they are honestly the comfiest pair i own, I'm not really sure if i should be wearing such a light washed denim but hey we have to step out of a comfort zone at some point. I have so many t-shirts that I forgot i had this one hanging in the wardrobe and with recent stories in the press the slogan "I AM WOMAN" made me feel like it was the perfect time to wear it with pride.

The one trend that i suppose i came to love this winter was the shearling coat! I wasn't keen at first and the one coat i wanted from H&M sold out like that so i went for this cosy number from New Look Curve and it was worth every penny! the only down side is that its completely open but nothing a belt can't fix. Yes the bag may be a little over the top but we all have to add a little touch of dun to an outfit and the shoes are 100% my current favourites.

My Go to trousers

These trousers are one of those items that I have lived in over the past few months. I really struggle to find trousers that fit properly so I always tend to wear skirts or dresses. So when I spotted these in new look it was instant love, yes I fell in love with a pair of trousers. The colour is perfect for me as black is my go to shade, the plates give amazing movement and the length is perfect for showing of my slides. 

I have since searched all over the high street for more. I have even gone so far as buying PINK, yes a PINK pair of trousers which I'm sure you will see very soon. 

This t-shirt is one of those items that i had to have in my wardrobe, I love stripes and the sequin roses make it more 'girl' appropriate. For those of you wondering, yes I do actually listen to Guns and Roses, so it perfectly acceptable for me to wear this tee in public and not worry about someone walking up to me and asking - what do they sing then? 

I know this is a basic outfit but for someone who is not a fan of summer dressing its prefect for the unpredictable weather. As for my very small bag, surprisingly I can fit a hep a things in there that really would amaze you! 

Also how good is my natural pose getting? who knew i could pout so well!
